potential blindness. lawyers for the gitmo prisoners have sent a letter to u.s. defense center chuck hagel urging him to help end the mass hunger strike at gitmo. >> michael: colonel davis do you think these prisoners should continue to be held there at gitmo? >> no, i mean, for a variety of reasons. we're spending 25 times per year to keep them there than in federal prison. the majority of people have been cleared to transfer out of gitmo that we don't want to keep and it's a blight on our reputation. other countries around the world when we try to condemn them for some of their practices they say what about guantanamo. there is no interest in keeping the place open. >> michael: why is it still going? i'll ask you again, colonel davis, what happens? how does this continue to happen? >> we need leadership out of president obama. he said the right thing back in '09 when he signed the order saying that guantanamo was a blight on our reputation and it had to be closed. but then he lacked the leadership to follow through on his promise, a and we're here four years later. as david said, y

actually put it in the back of your head when people go to jail but i'm happy with the way the defense presented their case. their argument was that to be drunk equals consent. that was their explicit argument argument. they said jane doe, the 16-year-old who was victimized, they called her a drunk out of town football groupie. if justin lipps had sentenced them to nothing and hit that gavel and said you're free to go, given the cultural peaks that this trial was shouting out from, the effects would have been incredibly distracktive. >> john: it would be for them to go after some of the bystanders as well. it appears these guys thought nothing serious would happen because coach reno would make it go away. how common is that mentality in team sports. >> it's very common and it's been studied for decades. i found a study from 1994 that shows that college male college athletes make up 3% of male students yet 19% of those charged with sexual assault. >> john: can you repeat that stat for me? that's very important. >> yes male athletes make up 3.3% of the men at colleges. yet 19% of those c
